Are you new to dentures? If so, you are not alone. Dentures are a common way to restore your teeth if you have suffered tooth loss. However, being new to dentures may inspire questions on how to care for them, so your dentures can last for many years. To help you with this transition, your dentists, Dr. Lyndel Stripling and Dr. Shawn Nemovi with Lake Highlands Dental in Dallas, Texas, are pleased to provide you with intel on the best ways to care for your dentures.
Here is some information on how to care for your dentures to keep them in good shape for years:
– Dentures are fragile. Because they are fragile, they should always be handled with care.
– Modern dentistry can craft your dentures to fit your mouth comfortably. For maximum comfort, dentures can be sized and shaped for your oral health needs.
– Always remember to clean your dentures every single day. This includes soaking them in a denture cleaning solution or in plain water. To prevent any denture solution from ending up in your mouth, rinse them off before inserting them back in your mouth.
– Speak with your dentist about product recommendations and suggestions if you do have any lost or missing teeth. They can assist you with denture care and treatments to keep your dentures safe.
